9:09 am
chatzky of course. this is a concept everybody would like to hold onto -- never running out of money. consumer reports polled rears d how did they manage it? we asked 25,000 of our readers over the age of 55 how much money they ha how happy theyere with where they were with their money and what they sh they had done fferently. a big ones when you start and how much you save. thearlier you start the wetter off you are. >> that's right t. fir stip is to live modestly. that's being the number one rule. right? >> so many people speore than they me on a regular basis. it's just not sustainable. if you can get yoursel to save a little bit off t top and just keep yourself under that level of what you're earning you're fine. >> where is it that people are falling when it comes to putting money asideor retirement when comes to that? >> well, w know that at this point, about 50% of all people are going to run out of money in tirement. that's a very, very scarey
9:10 am
statistic. but if they are in the 1-k plan that numberrops to 20%. that the first thing you should do. if you don't have a 401-k available, open an ira, contribute automatically, save first and then spend. >> thas the point, greg, that you make as well. start saving early. sohe earli the better then. >> that's right. a lot of it -- we can't go back in time but start now and try to putway as much as you n. >> contribute the maximum to the 401-k plan. also keeping a dget. jean, this is the nexttask. >> peopl hate thatword. >> the minute you budget you cringe how important is it to live by what you put on paper? >> it's crucial. think about it in terms of planning your spending. think about deciding first how muchou're going to spend o the differen things in your life. how much i going to go to housing. it should be no more than 35%. % for transportation.
9:11 am
you should always save 10%. that leaves about 25% for the rest of your life if you keep to those levels u're fine. >> the mdle age yearsoughly from the 30s to the 50s is the point that you all make is to prioritize retirement over college. can you explain? >> it sounds harsh, but retirement is your numberne priority. even if you arerying to save to put kids through college. contribute to your retirement and thenontribute what you can to colle after tha you don't want to depend on your ki in old age. >> s many of us want kids to go to whatever school they want and we wan to make sureheir college is taken care of. it's hard to put youelf first. >> the roth ira is a good vehicle. you can use theoney for your retirement. you can also pull it out for coege. so if you're not saving enough today, open a roth and start funding that. at least you willeel like you're doing the bestor your
9:12 am
kids and you will figure it out whenou get closer to college. >> and the next point, greg, is to catchup. thats to the point where if you are in your 5s you have time for your retirement. now the time. >> right. a 401-k, as jean mentioned, makes it easy. after 50 contrute an extra $5500 a yea and that's aood way to begin to catch up. >> if youaven't started saving by the time you'ren your 40s, saving 10% wch is what most financial aisers will tell you to do isn't enough. you haveo aim for 15. you have to r yourself thrgh the retirement calculator. you have to see where the hole is and you have to gr up. know that's tough advice, but you're gng to be sorry if you don't. >> absoluly. the next major point is to pay off debt. now what kind of debt are we talking about? >>igh interest rat credit card debt. it's a savings killer. you have big billsvery month. you can't save becse that's sitting on your he. you have to work your way through that highnterest re debt first and then really whale
9:13 am
the savings. >> at the same te you're paying off debt it is important to remember to save what you can. >> absolutely. make se you are doing both at the same time. >> okay. finally, last point is ttime your pay which means sometimes having to work longer int those retirement years. >> exactly. if you c put off taking social securityp to age 70 youet a lot more. you can te it at but it will be low for the rest of the time you're collecting. we found that people just enjoy work for the most part. there is the social aspect, the feeling that you are doing something useful. >> kps you young at heart. >> if y stay in the work force it's good thing for a bunch of reons. >> great to have youn with us. thanks so much. coming upext in oday's real estate" how to get the most from a seller when you buy a home and is skipping a broker a good idea? we'll answer some ofour most ked questions. d ter, tame the frizz for good. we'lshow you how to love your curlafter these messes. can't be simple? card rews
